Updates galore…

Here are two more pieces I’ve finished this month. Hoping to have the store up and running soon! Both of these works are acrylic paint, pastels, archival ink, and embroidered over the top. Then they are sprayed with a clear lacquer to seal them. The first piece is 12×25 inches and the second is 8×10 inches. Feedback is appreciated!

It’s Official!

So as of October 1st, The Weathered Pearl is officially a registered business! I’m so excited for this new chapter of life! My son’s school recently held a silent auction to raise money for different classes and orginazations. I was very happy to be able to donate two original art pieces. I’ve also been approached about doing a substantial piece for the school itself. I feel so very blessed to be able to do what I love!  (photo credit: theweatheredpearl)

Those Phylisophical Moments…

  
Sitting in the early morning appreciating womanhood, I wrote this. I wasn’t sure if I’d be sharing much of my personal writing on here. However I’ve decided to go big or get off the internet. So expect more excerpts from my daily journal and perhaps a flip through of my art journal in the near future!

Parental feelings

     I have arrived to a new chapter in motherhood. My son Martigan will be starting kindergarten in less than a month. I’m not quite sure how to feel about this upcoming change in our life. 

     On one hand, I’m nervous and have a small sense of dread deep in thepit of my stomach. I keep reminding myself that he is in fact, ready for this, and I’m the one having seperation issues. On the other hand however, I’m looking forward to being able to throw myself into a project completely. Home improvement projects, yard work, even everyday cleaning time will be cut down considerably. I’m literally imagining ,at this moment, all the painting and art I’m gonna get done.

     I think once we settle in to a rhythm of sorts, and I stop crying everytime I drop him off, I might finally find the courage to open an online store. I might even talk myself into a few local craft shows. The possibilities are endless. I’m still nervous for my baby, but I’m excited for our family.

It’s been awhile…

Well, as we all know, life gets hectic. Turns out, my life decided to take a ride on the busy train. 

Tomorrow is the silent auction to benefit my friend’s daughter’s pageant trip. I did finally decide what the second contribution would be. I settled on a crochet rag dream catcher. Hopefully that, and the painting will bring in a bit of profit for her. 

Here are the finished pieces:

A work in progress… Love helping a friend!

     I recently had a friend of mine ask me if I would be interested in donating some of my creations for a silent auction she will be holding in July. The proceeds will go towards funding her daughters trip to nationals for pageant. I’m so happy that I’m able to help. I’ve decided to donate two different projects. The first is a custom painting. The second is still a bit of a mystery. I’m leaning towards crochet, but I’m still open to whatever idea may spring to mind. 

  
This work is entitled “Brave”. The silhouette is a mixture of acrylic and gesso that gives a lovely textured effect in person. The work is mostly in acrylic medium, but I tend to use a mixture of acrylic, pastels, ink, watercolor, as well as sharpie in most of my works. I apologize for the poor photo quality. I plan on taking future pictures with my Nikon instead of my phone. Also excuse my messy work area. The neat freak in me cringes at this very moment. I will be posting an update once this work is complete. Perhaps I will have a better idea of what project two will be by then.
